On the game getting away in the third quarter:

“We have to be consistent, and right now we’re not. It’s the common theme with our group over the last four or five games or so. It’s always one quarter where it just gets away and it’s something I have to figure out and something our team has to figure out. We will, but right now were going through it and we have to pick up our juice and be consistent doing it.”

On Brandon Ingram returning to the lineup:

“It’s great to have him out there. Started the game really well, moving the ball. He is knocking off some rust, which we expected, but we will continue to stick together, get healthy and get after it. Tonight, was not our night. Give the Timberwolves
credit. They came in here and their third quarter spark, their run, we couldn’t get it back.”

On seeing Willie Green get ejected:

“It’s been a long season. I think we lost 11 of our last 14, but with that being said this was a winnable game for us. We just felt like things weren’t necessarily going the way they should have throughout the game. You guys watch it, so you understand the frustration and where he was at that moment.”

On the six-game losing streak:

“We have to win a game. Easy right? Sounds easy, but we have been struggling. The season is full of ups and downs and that is our down. How can we get over that? I think stick together, work hard, as we have been doing. Every team goes up and
down, and that down that we feel makes us stronger.”

On Brandon Ingram returning to the lineup:

“He’s not going to be coming back from missing this long, as he missed 2 months, and expect for him to go score 100 points. As good as he is, he still needs some time to get that feel back, and I am really happy that he started that. He played the first game and now we are going to see him doing more and more every game. So, we need him. We depend on him and he is a great player.”
